Regardless of where you go and what you have planned, the iPhone is the perfect travel companion: concise, full of features with applications for almost anything. If you are making travel plans, stop by the App Store and download this important travel application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

TripAssist by Expedia: Before you can enter the sky, you must book a plane ticket. Luckily, Expedia, together with experts who don’t need to find cheap airline tickets, came to the rescue with TripAssist. This application performs many of the same services that you find on the Expedia website: users can compare prices and book flights, hotels or even rental cars. However, the use of TripAssist does not end there. The application will also send alerts to remind you of your flight or to notify you of delays or schedule changes. If you want to change your reservation, TripAssist can do that too, often at no additional cost.

Tripit Travel Organizer: Keeping track of travel plans and other travel documents often causes headaches. Tourists must think enough without having to worry about finding connecting flights or finding alternative routes if they, heaven forbid, miss flights. This is where Tripit, a critically recognized travel plan application, comes in. Wherever you book flights, all your travel info can easily be imported into Tripit by simply forwarding the confirmation email to the @ package. Tripit will manage everything, including frequent flyer miles.

Peru Luxury Travel: Fine Restaurants of Lima

Peru Luxury Travel: Fine Restaurants of Lima

Many aspects can be taken into account when planning a luxury vacation to Peru: the way you move, the way you live, and the way you eat. With this last one, go no further than Lima where all the incredible gastronomy of the large country has congregated. In this capital metropolis which houses (and feeds) more than 8 million people, it’s no surprise that one can find cuisine from almost any corner of Peru within just a few city blocks. Beyond the delicious street food and local hole-in-the-walls called hariques, Lima has all the 5-star dining areas and everything you’re looking for and more to fit into your Peru luxury travel plans.

As a first time visitor to Lima or inaugural trip to Peru, one cannot miss trying the ceviche. The classic, national dish is made of a raw fish or seafood mixture marinated in fresh lime juice, a little bit of spicy aji pepper, and garnished with features such as lettuce, red onion, and salty choclo corn kernels. It is a very light dish perfect for a relaxing afternoon, but you’ll still find yourself satisfied after a hearty plate of ceviche. Pair your entr?e with a light beer, and soon you’ll even feel Lime?o! In Lima, there are dozens of renowned cevicherias that serve their namesake specialty typically during lunchtime hours. La Mar, owned and run by the famous Peruvian chef Gaston Acurio, is one of the more coveted dining locations. Reservations are not accepted, so be sure to arrive early around opening. Another of Gaston’s star restaurants is Gaston y Astrid, the top of the top of Lima’s cuisine map. Finally, for a more casual meal, head to Pescados Capitales where the plates are large and you can relax with a table of your friends and family without …

Cheap Family Vacations: Myth or Reality in Today's Economy?

Cheap Family Vacations: Myth or Reality in Today’s Economy?

Here’s earth-shattering news…cheap family vacations are what families like yours are frantically looking for. In today’s economy you just can’t afford to be putting your family in severe debt just to afford a decent vacation.

You’ve probably even had wild thoughts about buying a timeshare. This is a huge commitment that a lot of timeshare owners later regret after knowing that there are more affordable timeshare alternatives.

With the costs of timeshares remaining steady as maintenance fees go up it just doesn’t make financial sense to bury your family in this kind of debt…especially if you don’t have to.

In the past, the choices for cheap family vacations were severely limited. It was usually deciding upon a low grade hotel room and a motel room with really no difference in between the two. Sometimes taking budget family vacations meant being un-welcomed guests in one of your relative’s homes.

What’s the point of being miserable on vacation because your family is cramped into a small hotel room or worse yet a tiny motel room? And staying with relatives all the time when you go on vacation is a good way to wear out the welcome mat real fast.

Is this what you really call a vacation? Unfortunately for most families this is what budget family vacations looked like.

And for those families who don’t know the “secret” that thousands of die-hard travelers have turned to for decades, it just may be the way your next vacation may turn out to be…until today.

This is the day that you learn that you can absolutely take cheap family vacations and stay at luxury resorts without putting your family on the path to financial suicide.

There’s nothing worse than being on vacation but not have it feel like you’re on vacation. That is the …

People travel specifically because they want to enjoy a rather relaxed time from their daily lives. But with the inconvenience of making travel plans and planning your trip from start to finish might be a bit of a hassle. Thankfully, there is a travel tour that does that for us which also includes a tour to take you to your destination without all the fuss and noise.

Global travel is provided by various local and international travel companies to provide high value vacations to suit your needs. Like travel tours, packages are equipped with all the necessary information you need from a complete itinerary to the hotel or hotel where you will stay during your trip.

But the most important thing to note is being cost efficient and maximizing your stay time at the destination. Because they have prepared travel plans even before your trip, the arrival and departure times for these destinations are carefully planned to give you enough time to study and see more places. In addition, they will also map important sites that you need to see so you don’t miss anything.

However, it makes traveling much more comfortable too. With all these transfers from the airport to your hotel and wherever you need to go (as long as it’s on a travel plan) everything is provided for. The tour also reduces the possibility of spending a little too much money and the occasional “lost tourist”.

Although there is a guarantee of a smooth trip, sometimes it may tend to be busy and may require moving faster than usual to follow a schedule. Some tours are definitely more tiring than others, so you should really see which travel packages you can take.

Depending on the tour tour you use, itinerary varies from the included scenery to the …
